Nantucket Baby!!

Back from a few days off.

Hey everyone. It's Rob.

I was lucky enough to be invited to a wedding on Nantucket, MA.

Never been there. Our journey started last Thursday. After flying into Boston, we took a connecting to the island on Cape Air. It reminded me of Sandpiper Air from the show "Wings." Seated maybe 8 people.

As we approached the island, you could see how beautiful it was from the air. Up close Nantucket is stunning. Its a small island 30 miles south of the cape and features one of highest concentration of pre-Civil War structures in the U.S. Many of the streets are cobblestone. Nice to look at, but tough to walk on and uncomfortable to drive over.

Lots of seafood as you can imagine. Sampled clam chowder in almost every restaurant we stopped in. Each claiming to have the best. Honestly, they all kind of tasted the same. Very good, but the same.

There was a slight hiccup with Hurricane Earl. We saw shop owners boarding up the windows. Turned out to be a whole of nothing. It rained. That's about it. After Earl left the weather was beautiful. The sun was out and there was always a nice breeze. We got to check out the beach and sit in the sand. The rip-tide was too strong, so swimmers were warned to stay out of the water.

The only thing to rival the beauty of Nantucket was the bride. She was stunning. The groom couldn't look happier.
